PM Modi again rips into Congress in Rajya Sabha: 'Jitna keechad uchaloge, kamal utna hee zyada khilega'

Unlike the previous UPA administration, the BJP-led Centre, according to PM Modi, prioritises the people over partisan gain. We provided LPG connections to 25 crore families nationwide for this reason, he emphasized.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed that his administration upholds true secularism by ensuring that the average man benefits from centrally sponsored programmes in a sarcastic attack on the Congress.

“True secularism is making sure that the benefits of different government schemes reach all eligible beneficiaries,” PM Narendra Modi said in Rajya Sabha on Thursday.

Unlike UPA BJP prioritises people

Unlike the previous UPA administration, the BJP-led Centre, according to PM Modi, prioritises the people over partisan gain. We provided LPG connections to 25 crore families nationwide for this reason, he emphasized.

“They (Congress) used to say ‘Gareebi Hatao’ but did nothing for over 4 decades. While we work hard to meet the expectations and aspirations of the people of the country,” the Prime Minister said.

If Nehru is so great, why not use his surname

“I had read in newspapers that at least 600 schemes were named after Gandhi-Nehru. I fail to understand why his (Jawahar Lal Nehru) descendants fear using his last name. If he was such a renowned person, then what’s the shame?”

'Modi-Adani bhai-bhai'

As PM Modi started his reply to the Motion of Thanks on the President's address, the Opposition MPs, especially from the Congress party, started raising slogans of "Modi-Adani bhai-bhai" in Rajya Sabha.

"The country carefully hears what is said in this House. Some MPs are bringing disrepute to this House." PM Modi further took a jibe at the opposition with a Hindi Shayari, "Keechad uske pas hai, mere pas gulal...jo bhi jiske pas tha usne diya uchaal".

"I want to tell the Opposition MPs, the more 'keechad' (sludge) you will throw at us, the lotus will bloom even more. So, you all have an equal role in making the lotus bloom, and I think all of them for that," he said.
